I have 2 Plumeria's which of course I have to bring in each winter. They are about 4 feet tall but have not bloomed. One of them has bloomed before I think last year. The other is a cutting of the first and has never bloomed. When can I expect these to bloom and what can I do to help them bloom. I got them when I was in Florida.

Feed your Plumarias with a bloom booster fertilizer such as Scotts Bloom Booster (12-55-6) according to the label directions. Bloom booster fertilizers are high in phosphorus (the second number of the three numbers in the fertilizer analysis). Phosphorus is an important nutrient for the production of flower buds and flowers. The label will instruct you as to when and how often to feed with this fertilizer.
If the cutting was taken from a branch that hasn't flowered yet, it may take it a few years before it begins to bloom. Since the one plant has bloomed before, the bloom booster fertilizer should help it produce buds and flowers again.
